Suzanne Archer opened Christine’s Patisserie and Tearoom on Saturday, November 14.

“I have been a chef for a while now and I moved back to Woodbridge a few years ago,” she explained.

“I have been doing my own cake decorating, but this is the way I have wanted to go since I was quite young.”

Inside the tearoom, teacup lights illuminate the counter, which is filled with rows of perfect pastel-coloured macarons.

There is also a large range of teas and speciality coffees to choose from.

Suzanne has had help from family while setting up the business. “My brother and dad have been really supportive,” she said.

Her dad helped her make the pretty teacup lights in the shop, for instance.

There is a family connection with the name of the tearoom, too. Christine’s is named after Suzanne’s late mother.

“I think she would have loved it,” said Suzanne. “She always knew I wanted to do this.”

Christine’s Patisserie and Tearoom is at Beresford House, 74 Thoroughfare, and is open from Monday to Saturday between 9am and 4.30pm.
